Season 7 Quotes
|Season 7 / Episode 19: - Transition|
Louise Thornton: Rough day?
Josh Lyman: Nuh, typical.
Louise Thornton: You love it, you live for it, you were born to do it, I'm the same way. Everybody tells me to get a life, although I don't know why... I find life to be terribly overrated. It's actually quite boring when it's not disappointing. Say what you will about what we do, but boring it is not.
Josh Lyman: I know that you can parlay the Santos win into a doubling of your fee.
Louise Thornton: Tripling, if it figures into your memoirs.
Josh Lyman: Nothing is going to top this. Everything else's going to be a letdown.
Louise Thornton: Letdowns that make me semi-rich, that's a tradeoff I'm willing to endure.
Josh Lyman: You don't care about money.
Louise Thornton: Who doesn't?
Josh Lyman: You!
Louise Thornton: Not as such.
Josh Lyman: As what?
Louise Thornton: Scorekeeping. Quantitative evidence that I'm smarter than you. Not *you*.
Josh Lyman: Who?
Louise Thornton: Everybody else.
Josh Lyman: Come on board as communications director.
Louise Thornton: Thank you, but no.
Josh Lyman: Finish what you started.
Louise Thornton: I'm not interested in governing.
Josh Lyman: Campaigning's about promise; governing's about achievement. It's, it's tougher and a lot less romantic, but it's not boring. I already think you're smarter than everyone, that's why I want you down the hall. Come on, it's not like getting a life!
Louise Thornton: That's true, look at you.
|Season 7 / Episode 17: - Election Day, Part 2|
Josh Lyman: [Josh is in Leo's hotel room, blaming himself, while the rest of the staff is partying upstairs] I talked him into this.
Donna Moss: Nobody ever talked Leo into doing something he didn't want to do. And he'd want you upstairs. Not down here. You belong up there. It's your night. He was so proud of you, Josh.
